12:00 06 January 2013
STANWAY Rovers have parted company with manager Steve Pitt.
He was relieved of his duties by chairman Roy Brett after being called into the boardroom following a training session yesterday when Stanway were without a game.
The experienced Pitt, who was previously with FC Clacton, took over the reins at The Hawthorns at the start of last season and guided Stanway to fifth place - their highest-ever finish in the Premier Division.
In addition, the club lifted the Ridgeons League Cup, defeating Norwich United 2-1 in the final at Diss Town FC.
The club currently sit tenth in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division with games in hand on clubs around them and have lost just once in their last ten games - 3-2 at Woodbridge Town on December 29, after leading 2-0 with a quarter-of-an-hour to go.
Stanway subsequently drew their most recent game, 2-2 at bottom-of-the-table FC Clacton on New year’s Day, when they were pegged back by a late equaliser.
Stanway have a home quarter-final in the Red Insure Cup, the competition formerly known as the Ridgeons League Cup, against Haverhill Rovers on January 22.
